Great news! Business Women’s Link is taking the “on trend” route to networking this month by meeting members in a “Zoom Room”!


The BWL Focus Group is disappointed that the Coronavirus pandemic has forced the cancellation of the rest of its 2020 events – but we’re determined to reconnect with everyone – so make sure you join us virtually on Wednesday, July 15 at 5.30pm.


We’re thrilled to announce guest speaker Samantha Kendall of Kendall Training will be sharing her knowledge and advice on ways of Staying on Top Mentally – which has become a hot topic during the protracted lockdown.


East Midlands Chamber Entrepreneur of the Year finalist in 2019, Samantha is a highly- qualified frontline emergency ambulance medic with years of experience of dealing with 999 emergencies.


She now passes her lifesaving skills on to others through her training programmes and has contracts with large businesses. One is the RAF who selected her to deliver mental health training to personnel, along with physical first aid training.  Professional and passionate, Samantha is constantly in demand and perfect for our online get-together.


Samantha said: “Currently mental health issues are high-profile due to a direct impact of Covid-19. Having to isolate is having a huge impact on every one’s mental health and wellbeing. So, it has never been so important to reach out to others and check in to see how they are.


“I shall be sharing/talking about what mental health actually is and what risk factors there are, but also what protective factors we all have. I will discuss empathy and sympathy along with stressors and how to manage them. This session will be fun, engaging and hopefully thought-provoking.”


BWL Chair Ruth Hardy said:  “Focus Group members have really missed our physical networking events, so we hope our online event will keep everyone connected as we continue to work on our 2021 events calendar.”
